Sunset Over Frozen Waves
The beaches of Lake Erie are fascinating places in the winter with the landscape changing every day.

Winter at Headlands Beach on Lake Erie.
The Light is Always On B&W
I thought I would try a previous shot in black and white. I'm not sure which one I like better.
Drama Over Lake Erie
This was taken at Headlands Beach on Lake Erie. I was moved by the dramatic look of the sky. It only lasted a moment. But in that moment I was reminded of the sheer beauty that you can find in this world if you just look.
Headlands Beach Grasses
All is Calm
After the clouds cleared it had turned into a beautiful afternoon. I was cold, my feet were soaked and it was finally time to head home.
Again I came across that same log on the beach and i was taken by how the waves were crashing against it.
Headlands Beach Lighthouse
I was at the lighthouse for a second time. I tried unsuccessfully to dodge the waves. But I had to get the shot with this beautiful afternoon light.
After the Storm
After the clouds cleared the sun started shining with this absolutely beautiful golden light. So I headed back towards the lighthouse.
Calm After the Storm
I had gotten almost all the way back when all of a sudden the clouds cleared and the sun started to shine. So I unpacked the camera put on the bigger zoom and took a few more shots.
I was almost all the way back down the beach when it started to look like the clouds might break and I might get away rain free.
Weathering the Storm
I was on my way back down the beach when I saw this tree blowing in the strong wind. I like the blowing leaves against the dark clouds.
A Storm is Brewing
I was headed back down the beach and I wasn't sure if I was going to make it back before the storm. But I had to stop to take this shot. I really liked how the waves were breaking against the log lying in the beach.
This photo took first place in the landscape category of the 2011 Cleveland Metroparks "North Chagrin Photography Weekend" Photo Contest. I was headed back down the beach and I wasn't sure if I was going to make it back before the storm. But I had to stop to take this shot. I really liked how the waves were breaking against the log lying in the beach.
Light in the Storm 2
The clouds were very dark and the weather was ominous but occasionally there times when it lightened up a bit.
Light in the Storm
The wind was blowing pretty hard and the clouds were pretty dark and the surf was kicking up. I was determined to get a few shots before it poured or I got struck by lightning.
Break in the Storm
I was hoping the clouds would lift. For a moment there was break in the clouds and the lighthouse was lit up just alittle bit.
